Lindo Micho CAN'T .... and Mariana's CAN (Las Vegas)

Hi All.

I'm not one to post negative thoughts too often but I felt the need to write about my recent experience

I just visited Las vegas and after seeing many good reviews about Lindo Michocan decided to take the family there for dinner . . . It was at there new locationon on decateur . . . I have to say that when I come down south (I'm from Toronto) I'm usually thrilled with the mexican/texmex food in vegas . . . Our meal at Lindo Michocan was one of the most disappointing I've had in a long time!!! . . . . All four entrees were served luke warm and very very greasy . . . the free soup they served us was over priced as it was pretty much lipton cup of soup and was horible . . . The waiter recommended the coca cola carnitas (said it was a specialty of theirs....) I'm pretty sure the pork was braised in a broth and the coca cola sauce added to the meat after it was cooked as there was no flavour to the meat at all . . . My stuffed peppers were so grasy (it was insane how heavy they were . . .) as well the free chips were fried in oil that had not been changed in a while and they were nearly burnt . . . Four entrees and 2 margaritas totalled 110.00 including tip. ( the cadillac margaritas were good buth they were $11.00 each!!) . . . needless to say we will not be going back to LM anytime soon . . . If I do it will not be to the west side one ...
On a good note regarding mexican food . . . I will credit LV hounds for recommending Mariana's Mexican Market . . . The meal that 3 of us had there was 10 time more authentic (and satisfying) than LM and only $18.00 for 3 people!!!! . . . and that was for 3 entree's . . . This market is a real find!!! . . . the tres leche cake was awesome and only 8 bucks for the whole cake!!! . . . and their chicharone con carne (did I spell that right?) was so crunchy , meaty and tasty . . . I will always pick some up when I am in town!!

Thanks for listening,
